Juventus Hopeful for Boost from Multiple Injury Returns

Juventus should be healthier once Serie A resumes after the international break. Manuel Locatelli, Adrien Rabiot, and Alex Sandro sat out multiple matches due to minor muscular injuries. They are highly likely to be good to go for the Bologna game. The Bianconeri barely practiced last week as too many players were on international duties. They will begin the preparation Tuesday. The trio might return to full training immediately, SportMediaset informs.

The Old Lady received positive news also on two stars nursing more severe problems. Paul Pogba is progressing nicely after going under the knife because of a meniscus tear, which he initially tried to avoid. He might be present and in good shape for the Benfica game on October 25th. It could be a key tilt for the qualification if the Bianconeri fully took advantage of the two contests against Maccabi Haifa.

As per La Gazzetta dello Sport, Federico Chiesa is on the verge of receiving the green light to practice with the rest of the team. It could happen as soon as next week. He had to slow down after trying to rush it in August, but the setback wasn’t severe. Things have gone well lately. Without further hiccups, he will be ready to play meaningful minutes in the critical Champions League clash. On the negative side, Fabio Miretti left the Italy U21 camp early due to an ankle sprain. He’ll take some tests shortly.

Our Take on Juventus Recovering Some Pieces

Considering Massimiliano Allegri’s lackluster tactics, the return of their best players is the only way for the Bianconeri to improve. If even Pogba and Chiesa can contribute before the World Cup, that would be a life raft for the floundering coach.
